My 7-year-old twins love to read but finding books they enjoy is difficult. Stuart is wonderful. He is witty but the humor is appropriate for a 6 to 9-year-old. His description of a "little cookie town" is wonderful. Stuart's imagination is wonderful. I wish there were more Stuart books. The illustrations are perfect and help add to the whimsical nature of the story. My boys loved reading both Stuart books. I have been looking for a series of books for my boys that keep it simple and fun ( but I guess these two books are a great start).
